    Application deadline:  March 12

    Creative Pinellas announces the return of their Emerging Artist Grant, designed to assist artists early in their career with the tools to make the leap to their next step as professional artists.

    The program provides grantees with a financial award geared toward the production of new work, leading to an exhibition at the close of the grant award period.

    Creative Pinellas will work to pair recipients with an artist mentor to guide the grantee through their development as a professional artist.

    Grants will be awarded for original work in the disciplines of choreography, literature, media arts, music composition, theater/musical theater, visual arts and interdisciplinary arts.

    Program guidelines and eligibility details, a sample application, grant FAQs and the online application are available here.

    “This grant program reflects our desire at Creative Pinellas to recognize the potential of our County’s emerging artists and support them in developing their careers,” said Christopher Hubbard, programs manager for Creative Pinellas. “Last year we launched the program to great success; the feedback we got from participating artists was that this grant was a game-changer for them in moving their work forward. We also came to recognize this program as a vehicle for supporting and showcasing innovative and exciting work, contributing to the expansion of Pinellas County’s status as a vibrant arts and cultural destination.”

    Funds for the grant program will be available in the spring, for use throughout the summer, culminating in an exhibition of the grantees’ new work at the end of September 2018.

    Over the course of the funding period, recipients will provide an insight into their creative processes for interested visitors through blogs posted at impactreturns.org. Past awardees have written about current projects, critiques on work in progress, reflections on life as an artist, and more.

    “We have an amazing community of emerging artists here in Pinellas County who are driving a tremendous amount of artistic and creative energy and innovation,” said Barbara St. Clair, executive director of Creative Pinellas. “By combining financial support, mentoring and an opportunity for an exhibit or performance, we believe this grant hits the sweet spot for what an arts organization like Creative Pinellas can do to support individual artists, to encourage and sustain the arts and cultural community, and to enhance the audience experience for residents and visitors as well.”

  • Babe Ruth Essay & Digital Media Contest for Students
    December 4, 2017
    Deadline:  March 15, 2018

    Babe Ruth as Humanitarian Hero:
    An essay and digital media contest for Pinellas County High School Students

    Babe Ruth in many ways adopted St. Petersburg as his “home away from home.” He played Major League Spring Training Baseball in St. Petersburg for ten years (1925-35), first with the New York Yankees and one year with the Boston Braves. It's believed he hit his longest home run ever against Major League pitching in 1934 in St. Petersburg.

    Babe Ruth is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player ever. Not as well known is his work as a humanitarian, including his love for his daughters Dorothy and Julia, commitment to children and youth, charitable work, philanthropy, friendship with African Americans and other minorities, and stand against hatred as evidenced by his signature in support of the 1942 “Christmas Declaration” condemning the mass murder of Jews in Nazi Germany.

    Guidelines for Educators

    The contest is open to high school students in public, religious and private schools as well as home-schooled. The contest’s goal is to engage students in thinking about justice and injustice in their world. From bullying to abuse, young people today face difficult situations and decisions. The Student handout will contain the text below to provide guidelines for creating contest entries.

    Tell us about the time you stood up to injustice.
      • The purpose of the contest is to make Babe Ruth’s tremendous moral courage on behalf of both European Jews during the Holocaust and African American baseball players in the 1940s relevant and inspiring for today’s young people.
      • Essays will be judged on perceptiveness, creativity, and facility with the English language.
      • Videos and Podcasts will judged on perceptiveness, creativity and facility with digital techniques. They must be at least two minutes and no longer than three minutes. Please display your name, age, grade, name of teacher or advisor and her/his preferred phone number as a screen credit at end of entry or as a spoken word audio credit for podcasts.
    This contest is presented by Keep St. Pete Lit in conjunction with the St. Petersburg Museum of History for the SunLit Festival. The contest concept was initiated by Bob Barancik. The cash awards are provided by the Blake+Barancik Design Group, Inc.

    Prizes
        • There will be up to four Student awards of $100.00 each. There will be awards in each category (essay and new media). The teachers of students winners will each receive a gift card of $50 to use for school supplies.
